Word 07: Rearrange Paragraphs Quickly

Swapping paragraphs in Microsoft Office Word can be complicated. As well as having to cut and paste, you often have to reformat line breaks afterward to make the paragraph line up properly. There is a trick in Word 07 that allows you to use the SHIFT+ALT keyboard shortcut.

Click the paragraph that you want to move, hold down SHIFT+ALT, and move the paragraph up or down by using the arrow keys. Each press of an arrow key causes your selected paragraph to jump over one adjacent paragraph.

As much as I dislike upgrading to new versions of software, this is an example to "definintely" upgrade to the 2007 version of Microsoft.

Happy Clicking!
